Tucker went 1-for-3 with a walk, a run scored, an RBI and a stolen base Thursday against the Rangers. Tucker delivered an RBI single in the second inning to begin his strong performance. The rest of his production came in the eighth frame when he walked, stole third base and proceeded to score. Tucker has had a very productive month of May, but he has been particularly aggressive on the basepaths by tallying seven stolen bases in 17 starts. Overall, he has maintained a .248/.348/.459 line across 155 plate appearances.
Tucker went 2-for-5 with two home runs, two runs and six RBI in a 13-4 win against the Red Sox on Tuesday. Tucker contributed a two-run shot as one of five second-inning home runs for Houston, and he tacked on a grand slam in the fourth to push his season homer tally to seven. After a sluggish April, the 25-year-old is up to a .294/.446/.569 line through 15 May games.
Tucker is not in Sunday's lineup against the Nationals, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports. He is hitting .310/.482/.500 with one home run and six steals in 13 games this month. Jose Siri and Chas McCormick will each get a start in the outfield in this one.
Tucker went 2-for-4 with a home run, an additional RBI and a walk during Thursday's 11-3 win over the Twins. Tucker led off the Astros' six-run sixth with a solo blast, his fifth of the year. Later in the inning, the lefty added an RBI-double to right field. Thursday's performance marked Tucker's first homer and multi-RBI game since April.
Tucker went 1-for-2 with three walks, a run and two stolen bases in a victory over the Twins on Tuesday. Tucker walked in each of his first three plate appearances, the second of which was in the fourth inning when he stole second base and later scored on a Jeremy Pena RBI single. He walked again in the fifth frame before notching a single and stealing another base in the seventh inning. The outfielder now has seven stolen bases on the season, three of which have come in his last four contests. Although Tucker only has three hits in his last seven games, he has walked 10 times over that stretch, raising his on-base percentage from .308 to .342 in the process. His season slash line now sits at .243/.342/.398 with four homers, 17 RBI, nine runs and five stolen bases in 103 at-bats over 30 games.
